Architecture in Conversation

Conversation with Adam Caruso

04 Oct 2018

The series 'Architecture in Conversation' questions what are the current debates in architecture planning and its social functions. Our guest speakers will explore contemporary debates in architecture linked to both our shows. Through different approaches, both exhibitions pose questions about the current role of architecture in neoliberal cities, as well as the role of spatial practices in imagining new sociabilities.
Adam Caruso, one of the architects of our building, is back to present his reflections ten years on. Caruso will also be talking about Trix & Robert Haussmann’s work and his design for the exhibition space. For this conversation Adam Caruso will be joined by Luke Jones and George Gingell from About Buildings + Cities.
Sold Out.
This event will be live-streamed on our Facebook channel, so you can witness the whole event!
Speakers' Bios:
Adam Caruso and Peter St John established their practice in 1990. The practice rose to prominence after winning an international competition for the New Art Gallery in Walsall in 1995. The practice’s engagement with the art world has been notable for the creation of museum and gallery environments that enjoy the confidence of curators and artists. Cultural projects include the Millbank Project at Tate Britain, Nottingham Contemporary, Damien Hirst’s Newport Street Gallery, and Gagosian Galleries in London, Paris, Rome and Hong Kong. Adam Caruso has been Professor of Architecture and Construction at the ETH Zurich since 2011. Caruso St John’s Newport Street Gallery was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2017.
About Buildings + Cities s is a podcast exploring architectural history, theory, space and urbanism, from the distant past to the dimly imagined future, as well as the technology, film, and literature of place and society. Luke Jones and George Gingell studied architecture together at London Metropolitan University, where Luke is now a senior lecturer at the Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design.
